My eraser tool isn't erasing everything in the circle size I have choosen. 

It only erases the inside area of the circle so only about 50% of the circle size. 

I have tried the smoothness and opacity settings, because I know thats the first thing people will say to check.

What is the brush hardness setting? You might also check Preferences >Cursor is set to 'Normal Brush Tip' and not 'Full Size Brush Tip'

Hello, when a tool misbehaves, the first thing I do is to reset it: right-click on the tool icon in the option bar.

Hi

 

I get the same results with both the Brush tool and the Eraser tool.

Are you on Mac? See troubleshoot cursor size in this document for an OS setting that can cause the cursor to appear too big? https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/basic-troubleshooting.html

@Jeffrey Tranberry 

I've just now changed the setting, and yes, it is working now (although I had perfected the "compensating"!) 😊

Nothing is working

 

I tried every setting possible in Preferences > Cursors

Full, Standard, Precise and it is not fixing the problem

 

Somebody has a solution...

Did you check the cursor size in your operating system's System Preferences > Accessibility > Display settings?
